The design utilizes wire ropes in conjunction with two hydraulic jacks to lift the elevator at a 1:2 ratio. For each foot the jack rises, the elevator rises two feet.

Advantages:

  • Jack hole is not required. Eliminating the cost of drilling and the risk of ground contamination from oil leak.
  • Offered in both low and high capacity elevators.
  • Accommodates front and rear opening configurations.
  • Available with higher travels up to approximately 90’-0”.
  • Minimal pit and overhead requirements.

Disadvantages:

  • May require a larger hoistway width to accommodate dual jacks and roping mounted on either side of the platform.
  • Governor access door is required in the overhead unless a special governor is provided.
  • Side openings are not an option.
  • Material cost and installation time is typically higher when compared to an in-ground application.
